Scholars say sharia will help women in Nigeria

I will believe it when I see it. Muslim scholars are saying that sharia laws in Nigeria will protect women more then the traditional laws.
Muslim scholars in northern Nigeria are launching a campaign to improve women’s rights through Islamic sharia law, which they say provides greater protection for women than traditional practices.
Sharia in Nigeria has made world headlines as a threat to women after several were sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, but Nigerian Muslim jurists, both male and female, say sharia is an opportunity to help downtrodden women.

So much of sharia is up to the interpretation of scholars. It has been bent and manipulated to justify all types of abuse and loss of rights for women.
Just sayin…
